A Daring and Beautiful Creative Reversal.

jESUS'S LOVE

He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross [willingly offering Himself on it, as on an altar of sacrifice], so that we might die to sin [becoming immune from the penalty and power of sin] and live for righteousness; for by His wounds you [who believe] have been healed. 1 Peter 2:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version

When Christ was hanging on the cross He was suffering ridicule by those who hated Him. Unimaginable agony in His body. Piercing heart ache watching His loved ones watch Him die and no doubt demons laughing at Him. Three days later He rose from grave and fulfilled Jehovahs prearranged glorious victory to bring all of His children into His family of every race, color and creed.

Talk about a turn of events huh?

“In a daring and beautiful creative reversal, God takes the worst we can do to Him and turns it into the very best he can do for us.”Malcolm Guite

Prayer: Thank you Jesus Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) that the worse possible manner of death known to the world was used to accomplish the most beautiful one in eternity. In Your amazing name I exalt You. Amen

May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.

He is there.

HOPE IN THE LORD

I look behind me and you’re there, then up ahead and you’re there, too — your reassuring presence, coming and going. This is too much, too wonderful — I can’t take it all in! Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit? to be out of your sight? Psalm 139:5-7  The Message Bible

Remember the Santa Claus song: You better be nice, you better not pout, Santa Claus is coming to town?

Now we adults understand there is no such person as Santa Claus (You don’t still believe in Santa do you?).

But, God IS everywhere.

When you are being naughty He is watching you.

Do you think Jesus would approve?

Ultimately you are doing what you do for one of two reasons: to serve oneself or to serve God. Unknown

On the other hand, when we are lonely, when we are sad, when we are worried, He is there. He has an unending sweet beautiful love for you. He cares.

When you go to sleep, He is there like a loving daddy. He truly is everywhere. He is always there.

So the next time you encounter any difficulties, remember: God is there, God cares. Take it to Him , call out to Him.

I believe that life is given us so we may grow in love, and I believe that God is in me as the sun is in the color and fragrance of a flower – the Light in my darkness, the Voice in my silence. Helen Adams Keller

At the same time remember that when good things happen to us they are gifts from God. Let’s not forget our manners and take time right there and then to say thank you.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Shammah ( The Lord is Present) – Hebrews 13:5 for always being with me through both the good times and the bad. I praise You in the name of He who I enjoy walking and talking the most with Jesus Christ. AMEN

Whatever is beautiful, whatever is meaningful, whatever brings you joy, may you be blessed with an abundance of it this every day this year. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Worry Leads to Impatience

god-is-already-there

Do not fret; it leads only to evil. Psalm 37:8 Holy Bible Amplified Version

To fret means to worry.

Have we not all fretted on more than one occasion?

I used to be a first class worry wort. If things did not happen in my time , I would take matters into my own hands. When the crash and burn happened my cry unto Jehovah was always the same : “ Jehovah , where were You , why did You not help me. “ He of course was not to fault but it was my own fault. It took me many years to wait upon His time , in His way.

I used to believe I was a patient man until I became a Christian and had to wait upon Jehovahs timing , not my own. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I believe not only was He teaching me patience but also to have and enlarge my faith.

Worry leads to impatience waiting for Jehovah to answer. Impatience leads to arrogance which says I will not wait for the Lords answer. This leads us to take matters into our own hands. This , of course , leads to disaster. Joseph- Anthony: Green

“O God, never suffer us to think that we can stand by ourselves, and not need Thee.” — John Donne

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Emunah (God is faithful) for blessing me with teaching me to always have faith and to be patient to wait upon Your time in Your way in every aspect of my life. I know You are faithful unto me to never leave me nor desert me. I praise You in the name of He who waited three days in the tomb before rising to eternal glory Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

God is Near.

 

 Do you believe that God is near? He wants you to. He wants you to know that He is in the midst of your world. Wherever you are as you read these words, He is present.–Max Lucado

It is not that Jehovah is far from you but that you are far from Jehovah. Think about that okay?

Why do you cry unto Jehovah and wonder why He is far from you when you do not spend any time with Him?

How much time do you spend talking with Him intimately (prayer), not just whining like a spoiled brat to give you things but thanking Him every day for all the abundant blessings he gives you every day?

When you do pray unto Him for guidance how much do you obey what he is saying to you if you do not like what He is saying unto you?

How much time do you spend reading His word?

How much of your time and your life do you give unto Him?

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11 Holy Bible, New King James Version

So if you want to get close with Jehovah why not ask Him to share His thoughts towards you and follow His paths that He has predestined for you to be blessed with peace, hope and a good future?  

Prayer: I praise You my loving Father Jehovah-‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for blessing me with always walking with me through trails and triumphs, sorrow and joy, for guiding my with Your wise gentle, firm had and most of all for blessing me with sharing the most awesome loving relationship with You, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I thank you in the name of He who walked amongst us Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Doing So with Wisdom.

 

 

By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments. 1 John 5:2 Holy Bible King James Version

That we faithfully are obedient to keep His commandments. It is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35 Holy Bible King James Version

We are to be charitable while doing so with wisdom.

There are too many bleeding hearts out there that want you to give money to help those who refuse to help themselves.

How many in say Africa breed like flies on dung piles and then cry to those in the western world to give them money. If they cannot support their children do not have them. Why should we support a destructive lifestyle? When I was doing missionary work in Central America they kept on telling me I should be married and have lots of children so that when I get old the children will support me. When I asked them how much they helped their parents they looked at me in shock and informed me they had no money to help their parents. Then they told me because I was rich (which I was not) that I owed them and had to give them money.

It is the same with these TV evangelists who are always crying for money. I used to listen to a few on the internet. Before the show they cry that they need money. Then, at the end they are talking about how you will have a great time with them on some cruise. Excuse me but if they can afford to go on cruises why do they need my money. I say they should publicly reveal their wages if they publicly ask for money.

For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” 2 Thessalonians 3:10 Holy Bible New International Version

Do not give to the lazy. There are too many welfare bums that are capable of working but are too lazy to do so and expect the hard working of society to support their laziness. How many are also involved in drugs and alcohol? Serving as a volunteer in soup kitchens I saw a lot of this.

Prayer: Please Jehovah Abba (God our father) bless me to imitate Your divine love to everyone today so as to be an obedient child but to give wisely not foolishly. I request this in the name of Your most loving son Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

Nourishes the Body.

DIVINE STRENGTH

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning. John 1:1-2 New International Version

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name. John 14:26 New King James Version

I was recently asked to explain the trinity to a new believer and this was my explanation.

The trinity is like the body.

The mind needs the lungs and heart to survive.

The lungs needs the heart and mind to survive.

The Heart needs the lungs and mind to survive.

So too is Jehovah, Jesus and the Holy Spirit intertwined and in so doing they nourish the body (which is the church).

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Rabbi (God is out teacher) for blessing me with teaching me the simple yet wise way to explain about the Holy Trinity. I pray that it is understood by the babes in Your divine family and helps draw them closer to You. I humbly ask this in the name of He who so wisely taught His disciples Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day

He Conceives Trouble.

SCAMMERS PAY

Behold, the wicked brings forth iniquity; Yes, he conceives trouble and brings forth falsehood. He made a pit and dug it out, And has fallen into the ditch which he made. Psalm 7:4-15 New King James Version

Behold: to observe; look at; see.  Mirriam- Webster Dictionary

iniquity: a wicked act or thing, gross injustice  Mirriam- Webster Dictionary

Many a times I have encountered scum that think they are so smart. They think they can pull a con job on me and I am stupid enough to fall for it.

To be quite honest, I am very gullible. Most times I am not even aware of what the real motives nor what the consequences are that the Slick Willies are planning for me.

However, you cannot pull a fast one on God. God plans an escape for me. Joseph- Anthony: Green

In the end the wicked end up being burned by their own wickedness and I escape the fiery wickedness they had planned on me. They have fallen into their own traps. The wicked end up enraged and deeply shamed.

 

Then those around, whom they bragged to laugh at them or in many cases are enraged at me.

 

Do you know why?

Because they see and know they cannot pull that wickedness on me.

Do you think they will learn?

From my experience, no, they just look for easier prey.

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Yeshua (God our rescuer) for blessing me with Your wise protection from the wicked fools who dare attempt to arrogantly abuse one of Your cherished children. I pray that the wicked learn from Your protection of Your children and  repent and come into Your divine family.I praise You in the name of He who refused to fall for any of the evil ones schemes in the desert Jesus Christ. Amen.                                                                                                           

May the sunshine of Jesus sweet love bless you today and every day.
